Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Please try our new JigsawGeo instead of this app. The new app, called "JigsawGeo" (without any extensions) includes all previous maps as in-app purchases. We are maintaining the old apps for a short while to allow current customers to transition to the new app. The new JigsawGeo will recognize your existing JigsawGeo purchases and transfer them to the new game.
Puzzle game that is also a great way to learn geography. Finish fast enough to earn a high score. You can double-tap the target or drag & drop it into position. The map can be panned by dragging or zoomed in or out by pinching. Try a double-finger double-tap to zoom out to full map (handy to quickly back out after you zoomed in close to get one of the tiny regions). Both portrait and landscape can be used. Web-based high scores let you compete against your friends and other players from around the globe.
Sure, perhaps you know where Egypt and South Africa are. But can you find Djibouti or Mauritius? You can zoom in quite far -- we have provided an amazing amount of detail so that you can see tiny islands and peninsulas that many other map games do not provide.
Four levels of play:
+ Traveler: New easier level that slowly zooms in on the right spot
+ Surveyor: Place countries by name
+ Navigator: Place countries by name of their capital
+ Discoverer: Challenging! Place countries by their flag instead of the outline shape
Check all the Options - you can set your default name for the web high scores, choose your difficulty level, enable sounds, enable drag & drop, and set the finger offset (during drag&drop, you can have the country “jump” to the side so you can see it better).
Choose from two voices that say the name of each country or region as you play.
“High Scores” shows the top four times for each difficulty level. You can clear the local high scores here too. Local is just on your device. Global is the web-based high scores list from around the world!
Look for other JigsawGeo games for other regions. Just search for JigsawGeo in the app store.

Good for learning
It is a fun way to learn. It can be a little frustrating with the smaller countries though. It isn't very forgiving so you might need to zoom in, but there is lag when zooming and trying to move across the map. Still it can be addictive. I would prefer if there was a 5-10 dollar version that covered all countries in the world, I don't want to have to buy multiple apps. If they really wanted to bump the challenge up they could show a countries shape and make us spell it out correctly, or just show the flag or capital and have us place that on the map. I would like a better understanding of the region as well, so quizzes that involved history, or languages spoken, or some other details would be fun to learn as well. But anyway it does what it says it does and it is a nice challenge.
I am hooked! Ended up buying them all.
This app is worth its weight in gold. I bought "Africa", because my boyfriend is from Kenya, and I didn't even know where it was. I ended up buying ALL of the countries, and I am hooked! I wish I would have had this for my 5th grade state fair unit, when I had to memorize locations and capitols. (Yep, there are capitol and flag settings, too!) Stop reading and buy it now!
As soon as I open it it crashes not good!
